It's Madness

Friday, April 26, 2013

The airport situation turned in to a C result. Yesterday I was out of town and I would be at the airport around the time I would usually have lunch. I hadn't made a plan for lunch - so I was going to have to wing it.

I located a grocery store and walked the aisle trying to find something I could eat that would not be high in calories. Couldn't think of anything. Saw the Deli and thought I'd get a sandwich - of course the server was so slow and there were 2 persons (including the person being served) ahead of me. So I did not have time to wait. I got a big bottle of water and left the store - headed to the airport. Checked-in only to be told the flight was going to be an hour late. emoticon . I am emoticon so I have to now chose between the convenience store or the take away store. I choose fried chicken wings and french fries and a glass of wine. emoticon . Feeling bad but satisfied - I settled in to wait for the flight, only to learn it is delayed another hour. We'll in my head I saw myself visiting the convenience store and getting some chocolate and potato chips and nuts and a soda. In reality, I struck up a conversation with some other disgruntle passengers and eventually read a book.

On arrival home, I headed straight to the gym. This was the day to do cardio (last week i did the spinning class). I started on the stair stepper. I was buggin' out after 2 mins. So I convinced myself to complete 5 mins. Then I'd do 5 mins on the elliptical, treadmill, bike and incumbent bike. I didn't have any music or a book to read, so I was struggling to do these machines and decided I'd have to make it interesting. I did each machine twice for 5 minutes. Headed home and had some Taco Soup I'd made from one of the recipes on SparkPeople. It was really good. I manged to stay within calorie goal - gave the chicken wings and fries - 840 calories.

Just wanted to say thanks for all your comments, SparkGoodies and SparkFriending me.

    Flight delays can be so stressful!! You held up well my friend! Good job staying in calorie range and pushing yourself to get the most out of your workout even though you were lacking motivation! emoticon

    Sounds like u did really good and resisted lots of temptation, good for u.
    And got in some exercise, and a healthy spark recipe.
    Can u use an mp3 or something while working out at the gym? I have to have distractions when i work out on my elliptical. I listen to cds or music or something, or write out a scriptures on index cards and tape them on the wall to meditate upon and memorize.
